Best Local Public Art

"Homage to the Pedestrian" on the Grove by Patrick Zentz

Readers' Picks

Boise is home to many pieces of public art, but because they've become such a part of our landscape, we often forget that they have titles and that someone created them; they didn't just spring from the earth. Zentz's piece is one that straddles the line between function and beauty. Four lamps react to those who pass by. When they detect a person's presence, they respond with drums, chimes, cymbals and bells. It's like having a soundtrack for your life, and who wouldn't want that?
